  • “…what an amazing book this is! I consider this book the definitive chronicle of Marvel and a ‘must have’ addition to the collection of any hard-core Marvel fan…”

    — ComicsSpectrum.com, blog
  • “…a fun and undeniably cultured addition to any man’s coffee table.”

    — Sharp Magazine
  • “…An absolutely essential book for any comic book fan.”

    — Selectism.com, New York
  • “…book of super-heroic size, barely liftable if you’ve never been bitten by a radioactive spider…The blockbusters may not merit repeat viewing, this book certainly does.”

    — South China Morning Post, Hong Kong
  • “A solid collector’s item for fans of this enduring company and the work they have produced… Old covers of Marvel issues now look more vibrant than they did when they were first printed.”

    — Filmwerk, London
  • “…far more detailed and informative than any other book on the comic legend.”

    — Popcultureshelf.com, Hamburg
  • “…there is stacks upon stacks of rare comic covers, interiors and the odd original art. Seen at this massive scale, it’s no exaggeration (sic) that your jaw drops… It took me nearly a month to read this book and was one of the best experiences I’ve had and relived a lot of old memories and learnt a lot more about the pre-60s. Just make sure no one uses this book as a doorstop.”

  • “The book is truly a thing of beauty. To paraphrase Richard Dreyfus in Jaws, ‘You’re gonna need a bigger coffee table’…A collectors dream, only something like this could truly reflect the impact of Marvel Comics upon the zeitgeist. Stan Lee – the real Captain America, we salute you…”

    — Debonair Magazine, Dubai
  • “There are already dozens of books that cover pretty much the same ground but there are a few factors that make this the only one you’ll need to own. As you would expect from TASCHEN, the book is bloody enormous – ‘Hulk size’. Because of this, the photos and artwork reproduced in the original size, can be experienced and enjoyed like never before. The work on show is incredible: obscure advertising and in-house material, beautiful covers, rarely seen snaps of the creators. The book succeeds in capturing the impact that the original comics had, while showing us the peculiar and peculiarly talented men (they were almost exclusively male) who laboured in this strange, somewhat denigrated corner of the entertainment industry, making masterworks that continue to fuel the business today. If you’re looking for a joyous celebration of the greatest (IMHO) comics company in the world, you won’t find a better or more lavish read. As the fan club members used to holler in the 1960s, ‘Make mine Marvel!’”

    — Jonathan Ross for New Statesman, London
  • “…This enormous tome is also the only book featured here that could be usefully employed in hand-to-hand combat. ‘Nuff said.”

    — The Scotsman, Glasgow
